So yesterday I went out after work to have a bite to eat before finally making it to the cinema to watch the new Star Wars film, Rogue One - which, spoiler alert ). So I didn't get home until almost 10pm, whereupon I was perturbed by a hissing sound coming from the cupboard under the stairs.

One of the water pipes had sprung a leak. In the cupboard. Which is a big cupboard, in which I store everything that needs to be stored out of sight. All of which is now soaked.

But I have a landlord, and the landlord has a maintenance guy and a plumber on retainer. So I contact the plumber. He informs me that he's off work sick and I need to contact the maintenance guy. I contact the maintenance guy. He's not answering. I leave a message. I go to bed. Except that my bedroom is right by the cupboard, so all I can hear is the hisssssssss of leaking water, so I can't sleep. So I take my pillow and quilt through to the lounge and sleep on the sofa instead.

Morning comes. Maintenance guy finally makes contact and promises to come look at the leak asap. I have to go to work, because there's an event on today that I organised and I have to be there for it, so I go to work and I go to the event. The food is great. Maintenance guy gets in touch to say he's fixed the leak.

But now. Now, I'm going to have to go home and face the dreaded mopping up, figure out what can be salvaged and what'll have to be chucked. My box of Christmas decorations is soaked! I just put them away! My fan heater, my little fibre optic Christmas tree, the strimmer - so much electrical stuff, now wet. Bah humbug.

Happy new year, eh.
